Social Media Tips

Posted on by 0 comment

Facebook and LinkedIn

If you’ve started using social media, specifically Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, these are some tips that I often mention during my training sessions:

1. Facebook

  • Start by following friends’ friends
  • Like, share, and comment. Like customer’s pages from your page.
  • Use polls on your page
  • Answer questions and comments
  • Share videos and blog posts
  • Use clickable links – http://www…..
  • No contact or sales info is allowed in page header
  • When logo area is clicked, have a link there
  • Use Milestones on pages, page posts every other day

 

Twitter2. Twitter

  • Be particular about who you follow
  • Keep username and tweets short enough so others can re-tweet
  • Start by following people someone else in your field is following
  • Hint: when you have little time – re-tweet and put your comment in front,
    then send the same tweet again
  • Reply to @s and DM’s
  • Comment, tweet info, answer questions – don’t be afraid to
    jump into a conversation
  • When sending a tweet, put the username after the comment for more views
  • Be the person who delivers knowledge – curate from the web,
    share old blog posts
  • Use keywords and hashtags to follow topics
  • Use lists to follow specific people
  • Outsource or autotweet your blog posts and spend time interacting
  • Careful with autotweet that the tweet is still relevant
  • Address problems asap and publicly
  • Use hashtags for events

3. LinkedIn

  • Complete profile and keyword URL’s, full summary and skills
  • Connect with those you know first, then a few new people daily
  • Think biz casual – share biz content, answer questions
  • No hashtags (this is changing) or RT’s
  • Like and share, reply to DM’s, respond to invitations
  • Participate in groups or start your own, comment on threads
  • Endorse skills of connections, Recommend others
  • Add a company page with video, documents, photos, FAQ’s
  • Tip: click LinkedIn Share button on a site and post to Groups

If you have your own website/blog, remember that the goal is always to bring people back to it – a Facebook page is not a website.

So are any of the above tips new to you? Any more I should add to this list for using Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn?

Here’s to keeping up with the world around us,
Carol

Jumpstart Your Learning For 2016

Posted on by 0 comment

As many of you know, I have a number of my courses on the Udemy platform ( a total of 9 so far). As well as teaching classes though, I have also taken many courses as a student. There are courses on almost every topic you can imagine. Most of the ones I’ve taken have been business related, as well as courses on how to make my Udemy courses better. I’m even taking a course on creating a book using Powerpoint – something I never would have thought of. The courses can be accessed my computer or mobile, which means I can learn no matter where I am.

I would love to hear what you end up learning and how you’re going to turn that learning into action, so please comment below.

To Your Online Success,
Carol

How to Join A Webinar in GoToWebinar

Posted on by 5 comments


If you’ve been hesitating to join me on Thursdays for my weekly training webinar, this short video covers the basics of entering a webinar as a guest of GoToWebinar. Other webinar platforms may have the toolbar on the top left instead of the right hand side. It can be intimidating at first, but with all the wealth of information that often is shared in a webinar, it’s worth spending the time to do.

To your Online Success,
Carol
